NEW IN THE SHOP (and a before & after, too)! May 7, 2012 I picked these up last year with the intent on holding them to collect a set. Unfortunately I never found the table to match, so I decided to refinish them to sell. Reupholstery debacle not withstanding, I switched my fabric selection, finally got my cushions made and ended up with a pretty sweet set. before after Can you tell I’m still crazy for that La Fiorentina pattern?? Just goes to show (again), classics never die. This set is now for sale in the shop, $225 for the pair…go here for more info. Also for sale is this Dorothy Draper-style chest. I actually have a pair, but the other one will need a bit more elbow grease. $225– see more here! ********************************** And I want to thank those of you who left comments and sent me emails about my post on Thursday. Not only was it great to get so much support from each of you, but I was also surprised to see how many of you had the same dream! I believe it will happen for each of us, truly. I have big, big dreams, ones I wasn’t ready to share here just yet, but the store is one that I’m so clear about that I know it will happen soon. Thank you all, old friends and new friends, for encouraging my dream. 🙂 Share this: Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window) Related 10 Comments on NEW IN THE SHOP (and a before & after, too)!
